Yes, this is a lovely cartoon if you're into Cinderella. The animation is nice and the color is pretty. But it does NOT star Betty Boop! It's not the red hair I object to. (In The Cocoanuts, Harpo's red wig looks dark in black and white.) This girl is too spineless, too much of a doormat to be Betty Boop. Betty would have applied that hot iron to her stepsisters' derrieres, gotten herself to the ball without any help and boop-oop-a-dooped that smarmy prince right out of those silly tights. This Cinderella has all the backbone of an overripe banana! They've taken her boop-oop-a-doop away!

Subject: A Cartoon treat
This is a wonderful adaptation of the Cinderella story. It stays fairly close to the original story with just a touch of animated whimsy, not too much in they way of overplayed cartoon humor. And Betty Boop is a great Cinderella, and borgeous with red hair. I suspect it's pointed a bit toward the adult audience - Betty's change from her rags to the ball gown is a bit spicy, but in the end she gets her prince. The music was really well done, with actually quite good singers. I never saw this as a child but it's a treat to finally get to see it now.
